Robot Chicken: Star Wars Reviews
- Emperor Palpatine
Not long ago in a galaxy not far away comes 'Robot Chicken: Star Wars', which brazenly combines the satirical sensibilities of Seth Green and Matthew Senreich's stop-motion animated characters with the memorable moments and favorite characters of the Star Wars universe - including, its creator, George Lucas. Whether it's Jar Jar meeting Darth Vader or the battle of "Yo Momma" jokes, such funny humor is everywhere and I like it so much. This 'Robot Chicken' special is the must-have for 'Star Wars' fans. Featuring the voices of Abraham Benrubi, Adam Talbot, and Ahmed Best.
and i usually like robot chicken. But its okay watch if your a huge star wars fan
Like I already said, not being a Star Wars fanboy but a casual fan, they would have to go to extremes to actually piss me off. For example, I like the slightly racist character Jar Jar Binks, who is hated by many Star Wars fanboys (and I'm friends with a few of them), and he's portrayed positively in this, with the original actor playing as him and everything. Adding the Robot Chicken action figure claymation to the Star Wars characters makes them slightly larger than life, and at the same time turns them from the stereotypes they invented (which is why as 2-dimensional as they can get, no one complains about Star Wars characters not being complex enough) into human beings, who occasionally screw up. Boba Fett is revealed to be a closet homosexual, which could have been offensive, yet it's actually pretty funny considering how far it could have gone. Darth Vader isn't all that bad after all, and the Emperor, that evil twisted old man who shoots lightning out of his hands, turns out to be a pretty normal guy with some anger issues. He talks casually with friends, gets mad at Vader and then has to calm him down, and in a humorous twist on how he died in the films, gets killed by losing a "Yo Mama" fight with Luke Skywalker, which is by far the funniest part of the series.
Even Star Wars creator George Lucas plays a part, getting chased down by a frenzied group of nerds and screaming "OH DEAR GOD" the whole time.
The whole thing is hilarious, even with almost no knowledge of the characters. Since most people like Star Wars, you'll like this for sure, and you'll be laughing your ass off the whole time.
